Khelvin Xu, most recently a disputes partner at Rajah & Tann Singapore, has left the firm to join local boutique Covenant Chambers as a director.

Xu focuses on cross-border and complex commercial disputes, particularly those involving technology-related issues. He represents clients in matters involving B2B disputes, shareholder agreements, minority oppression, directors' duties, and employment issues.

Xu is acting on a multi-million-dollar international arbitration for a cryptocurrency platform against a cryptocurrency trading desk, linked to the cryptocurrency crash of June 2022. He has also successfully acted in a multi-million-dollar international arbitration for a Japanese corporation listed on the Tokyo Stock Exchange against a Hong Kong entity in respect of the distribution of consumer products in Mainland China.

Xu becomes Covenant’s seventh director, according to the firm’s website.

Rajah & Tann has seen a lot of disputes-related traffic both ways in recent times. In December, partners Jerald Foo and Yoon Min Joo joined from Selvam and Harry Elias Partnership, respectively. The firm also hired international arbitration partner Hew Kian Heong in China in January, and last year lost partners Danny Ong and Wern-Jhien Yam, who established a disputes-focused law firm called Setia Law.
